Jason Romer, Group Managing Partner of Collas Crill, has confirmed his move to Jersey this summer as he looks to build on the potential that the firm has established on the island since its merger in 2011.
Jason has eight spent years leading the business from Guernsey and the move comes as the global firm prepares itself to achieve its ambitious growth strategy through to 2025.
“Collas Crill has been a firm driven by a core set of values for many years, which have been the backbone of our culture during our rapid growth over the last five years. 2018 has seen the realisation of a number of the firm’s core strategic objectives and we now plan for our next significant strategic step to 2025.
“We are committed to making investment decisions for the firm that support that future growth and moving people around our group to promote the selfless collaboration that we consider is so very important to our continued success.
“It is a great opportunity for the firm as we seek to continue to build on the fantastic potential that we have already established in Jersey.”
Following Jason’s move, Christian Hay will take overall responsibility for the business in Guernsey while Nuno Santos-Costa will remain as Jersey Managing Partner.
Furthermore the firm has recently announced the harmonisation of titles to ‘Director’ within its Senior Business Services team, particularly those who sit on the Management and Risk Committees. The changes recognise the increasing complexity of the group’s operations as it continues to expand its global footprint.
In July, the firm also made a double appointment of two communications specialists, working to develop and align group messaging in a strategic manner, from both internal and external perspectives.
Global Communications Manager, Kim Halliwell, joined the Guernsey office to develop strategies to shape the approach of people engagement and support internal communications around the firms strategy, cultures and values.
PR and Communications Manager Aimee Young, appointed in the Jersey office, is responsible for driving the firm’s external brand globally, strategic PR planning and aligning the firm’s core messaging across jurisdictions.
Jason will be permanently based in Jersey from 19 August. In the meantime he will continue to split his time across both offices.
